The interesting thing about international Fashion Weeks is that all of your favourite people in the industry are suddenly within walking distance.

The interesting thing about international Fashion Weeks is that all of your favourite people in the industry are suddenly within walking distance. Sara and I spent a morning chatting to the J.Crew team at their expansive Time Warner store, and reuniting with gorgeous Candice – followed by a sunny Wholefoods breakfast in Central Park just opposite.

Last time I was here in NYC, the park was grey, bare and freezing cold. Clearly, it’s quite the different story in September, so Candice kindly did a couple of snaps for me. Because I’ve been working so much over these few weeks in New York, I haven’t had the chance to tick off some fun Central Park Activities – hiring a bike, picnicking in the sun, paddle-boating, ice-cream… but all the more reason to come back right? Not long now, dear Apple.

But back to a topic of utmost importance: this killer of a jumpsuit. The story is that I tried it on last time I was in Los Angeles, but was just a little hesitant over the price-tag (poor student am I). I got all the way home to my hotel in North Hollywood, and woke up the next morning with this baby on my mind. Several trains, buses and a 5km walk later (I was without a car: LA rookie error), the sales girl thought I was out of my mind, and I was one awesome jumpsuit richer.

On the humid NYFW day I wore this too, the breathing space and gossamer-light silk could not have been more welcome. Had the print been in any other colour, it would surely be boxed in to night-time and event wear (though I’m looking at the other colours as we speak) – but honestly, who can say no to this onesie?

A happy salad of colour never hurt New York City – though I don’t think Sydney is ready for this yet. I’d been wearing it under tees as wide-leg pants, or under skirt as a sneaky peek top.

Anyway – I have to get back to working on an exciting interview I did earlier this week – somebody who I’d call fashion royalty. Any guesses?
